Not had a good laugh and a solid dose of Karma for a while, so sit back and enjoy this one:

Riding to the office today as per usual, I overtake a dithering fool in a bargain basement Jaaaaaaaaaag SUV on a 40mph country road.

How the driver thinks a 1.8 tonne, 2.0l Diesel SUV is any match for motorbike is beyond me... but there are a lot of car drivers that think their car is fast..so must be one of them, they try to outgun me but obviously fail..

Driver gets most upset by this which I was aware of at the time as I heard the horn going.. but such is life.. carry on...

I didn't expect the driver to phone the police and make a complaint about me, and somewhat embellish the overtake... making out I was some sort of hooligan out to kill everyone in the world.

I used to do a lot of support work for the blood bikes and various charities, so I know some local police quite well and one of them just happened to pick it up and gave me a ring to have a chat.

I supplied evidence of what actually happened from my helmet camera (a nice safe overtake), and also supplied footage of said driver speeding not only through a 30 zone but also a 20 school zone, going over double white lines 3 times and their mis-spaced reg plate.

Add to that the obvious lying to the police..... Job well done...

I missed half of mine. One of the group had need of the inshore and offshore lifeboat as well as the Welsh Air Ambulance and a Sea King in the end. Fair to say took the shine off the 2nd evening but it’s one of the more memorable ones I’ve been to

Being told by the podiatrist that I can now start physical fitness including running again after my surgery!

It's been a rather long recovery time but hopefully I'll be out running this weekend
